SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/AP) — Pinch-hitter Hector Sanchez singled over a five-man infield with the bases loaded in the 11th inning, lifting the San Francisco Giants to a 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday to take the three-game series.

Buster Poster singled off sidearm submariner Tim Dillard (0-1) leading off the inning and pinch-runner Emmanuel Burriss moved to second on Angel Pagan’s sacrifice bunt.

Dillard walked Brandon Belt intentionally then Ryan Theriot to load the bases. Left fielder Ryan Braun moved into the infield before Sanchez sent a full-count pitch off Dillard down the left-field line where nobody could reach.

Former Giant Travis Ishikawa’s run-scoring double handed San Francisco’s Santiago Casilla his first blown save in the ninth.

Lefty specialist Javier Lopez (3-0) recorded one out for the win.
